My beloved Grandmother(May she rest in peace)

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 3, 2012, 6:08 AM

Just a quick entry to apologise to everybody for  not responding to my messages, as promptly as I usually do....

I went on a trip to Eden  but  I have been forced to return home today because my beautiful and most beloved and cherished "Gram" died last night....It was sudden and it was unexpected and I am so totally devastated and heart broken....I feel so entirely lost and gutted without her....

My Grandmother was like the ultimate grandmother of grandmothers...she was my best friend,my second mother, my mentor, my heart and guide  and  my most trusted and loved confidante....She was so many things to me,the absolute light of my life and i absolutely adored her, and now she is gone and I feel so empty inside...

I also feel so guilty too, because whilst I was in Eden having the time of my life, she lay dying in a hospital bed in Shepparton and I'm not sure that I will ever be able to forgive myself for that....

My mother said to me last night on the phone that she had waited untill the very last minute  before she called me, because in the past my Gram has always managed to rally herself because she wanted  more than anything else to live....Sadly that was not to be.....

She was 92 years old,and a fighter...she fought for so long and she fought so hard and I admire her so much for her incredible courage and for her tenacious spirit.....

I can only hope that she is at peace now as she deserves  to be in eternal paradise....I just hope that she realised how much I loved her....I never got to say it to her,nor could i say goodbye,and that is haunting me at present.....

Until things are settled here, I may not be on DA as often as I usually am, but I will answer each and every message as soon as I can...

Take care fellow Devs, and if you can, spare a prayer for my "Gram,",or even just a positive thought..

Hope this finds you and yours all healthy and well....Luv Jacq xoxo.....And thank you to all who dsigned this amazing skin.....

Hi there!!!I am 39 years of age, and i am a single mum with a very lively vivacious 12 year old son named mitchell.We have a male cat named Peter, a female kitten named Pissy for obvious reaons, yes her name is suggestive of her favourite passtime, 7 goats, 3 chooks named Hennicka,Sweetie and Freckle, all hens,and six bluetongue lizards, one named Hiska and the others named Lil Man, Queenie, Banjo, Armani and Ginger..There are four females and two males!!I also have a female diamond python named Shnake, a black male rock skink name Rascal and a male Rainbow Lorikeet named Lazlo. I used to live in a little town called Adelong, which is in New South Wales Australia Maaate!!!.It has a history of gold mining and it has 900 hundred souls in the township at present.Sydney is 4 Hours away and Melbourne is 5 hours away, the nearest inland city is Wagga Wagga which is 1 hour away, and the nearest hospital and service station is 20 minutes away in a town called Tumut, so it's pretty rural, which I just loved! I moved to Eden which is located on Australia's south coast 6 months ago, and I am really enjoying it here! The township is rich in culture and art and has a history of fishing and whaling. I also love art and would like to be able to express myself to and with like minded individuals.I love drawing and lately haven't had much time to do much of anything due to work commitments, homelife, and the devastating floods that we have experienced here. These floods occured when I was living in Adelong.... but that doesn't stop me from occassionally doing cartoons of my workmates and the boss from time to time!!!It's All good though as they seem to have a sense of humour whiich is quirky and random just like mine!!!I also like to explore abandoned houses, any sort of abandoned buildings really as i have found these to have quite alot of history to them, not to mention that you can find some very amazing relics if you take the time...of course I highly reccomend that you get permission first if need be, because it really sux sitting in the back of a paddy wagon, (which happened to me before I grew a brain, you know young,reckless and full of adrenaline and just craving a groovy and awesome adventure.... Trust me adventure aint all it's cracked up to be, and they aint called the fun wreckers for nothing!!!But it's their job to serve and protect so I guess I can respect them for that...I also like to visit cemetaries as well, and i do this so that I can look at, photograph,read and sketch the headstones and sculptures that I encounter during these visitations.. Again i do this because i am interested in the history of the people that are buried within, I love drawing and sketching the angel sculptures especially...I find it quite tranquil, and it really is an amazing place to draw if ever you get the chance to go...I am always respectful during any visit to the cemetary,as I look at it as a privellege to be able to go there and draw, not a right....My fave 70s group is Raydio, their song "Jack and Jill",also luv M's song" Pop Musik"..These are the songs that I bop to when i'm in my creating zone at home....Oh yes and I almost forgot "I LOVE DOLLS"!!!!!!(:And I love boats!!!!I have a Flybridge Cruiser named Lenny...theres pics in my gallery if you'd like to take a look(:I am a collector of anything..I am a true Bower bird, I love anything shiney!!!!Not to mention anything unique or unusual or downright oddball!!!I also love going on random roadtrips...I'll just jump in the car and drive...9 times out of 10 I go down the coast but when i'm restless and when I have a case of itchy feet I can end up almost anywhere(-:I'm a bit of a Gypsy, a lost soul so to speak(-: I've always seen life as a bit of an adventure, and after following the path that life seems to be telling me to follow, it can't hurt every now and then to take a little deviation and go offroad once in a while. It's only by doing that and taking a chance that you are able to find the most interesting and truly amazing things, things that just normal folks don't get to see in everyday life!!!! I've always believed that in order to truly see things clearly, sometimes you've just got to stop and smell the roses! (-:
